Kyle Edmund gets rematch with Grigor Dimitrov in Brisbane quarters

Courtesy

Edmund meets world No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov next at the ATP event.

The Bulgarian will now battle Kyrgios on Saturday for the chance to defend his 2017 title at Pat Rafter Arena.

Millman took some solace from the fact that Dimitrov played two assertive highly-skilled points to save the two match points in the second set tiebreak.

Edmund, the world No.50, proved another fearless and plucky customer in a see-sawing contest that lasted almost two-and-a-half hours.

The 22-year-old appeared to roll over on his right ankle as he tried to change direction to catch up with a powerful Dimitrov forehand at the start of the ninth game.

Mr Trump has repeatedly called for investigations into his presidential rival. The Hill newspaper first reported the probe.

Although Edmund recovered to continue playing, he couldn't win a game from thereon as Dimitrov went on to clinch a 6-3 6-7 6-4 win and set up a semi-final date with local hope Nick Kyrgios. Dimitrov hurdled over the net to help and then offered him assistance in getting to the side. (The jumping, not the sportsmanship.) Edmund would end up finishing the match, though Dimitrov prevailed 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-4. It was very unfortunate what happened, for sure. I'm hitting the ball well and I'm serving really well.

"I only know kind of the initial feelings of it, which is not always so trustworthy, " she said of the injury.

Edmund defeated Denis Shapovalov and rising Korean talent Hyeon Chung en route to the quarter final but still remains without a victory over a top 10 opponent, having now failed 14 times to do so.

The other semi-final will feature another Australian, 18-year-old Alex De Minaur, and unseeded American Ryan Harrison - who had been due to play Murray on Thursday before the Briton withdrew from the tournament. The 18-year-old de Minaur stunned fourth seed Milos Raonic in the second round and there was no letdown Friday as he ousted USA qualifier Michael Mmoh 6-4, 6-0 to reach his first ATP semi-final.
